In a news release, police say they were called to the collision in Port Hawkesbury, a small municipality on the southern tip of the island, at 7:30 a.m. Saturday.
There, they found a car that had left the road and landed in a ditch.
Police say the 48-year-old driver was the single occupant of the car.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
